“No,” Smith tells Newsweek when asked if he is a Scientologist. “But when people are afraid of religion they have to go back and get in touch with the Good Book. Fear of other religions means you’re questioning your own understanding, and that’s just not where I am.
“I love the nature of humanity’s search for meaning,” he adds. “For me I’m certain about my relationship with the model of perfection of human life that’s laid out with the life of Jesus Christ. I’m certain of that. So I’m at home and not fearful when I sit in a mosque or a synagogue or a Buddhist temple, the same way that I’m home in the Church of Scientology. I like anywhere people are searching for the truth, and I respect their path and I’m intrigued by their path. I think when you are certain in and of what you believe in, you can open your mind to seeing the ways of others.
Smith continues, “I’m not bothered when someone says “Allah” because they’re talking about God—we are talking about the same person. I was in India recently and my hotel was near the Taj Mahal. Five times a day there would be a call for prayer, and it was the most beautiful thing. I was lying in my bed thinking, no matter what youris, it would be great to have that reminder five times a day to remember your Lord and savior.”
Smith also confirmed reports of a sequel to his hit movie ‘Hancock’, telling movie website JoBlo that there will “definitely” be another movie.
